R for the Rest of Us Podcast Episode 14: Will Landau

David Keyes David Keyes
April 17th, 2024

In this episode, I’m joined by Will Landau, a statistician and software developer currently working with Eli Lilly and Company. Will specializes in Bayesian methods, high-performance computing, and reproducible workflows. He is the creator of the {targets} R package, a pipeline tool for reproducible computation in statistics and data science. The package became part of ROpenSci in early 2021.

Will talks about his journey into R and using it for open source projects. He gives a detailed account of {targets} - its origin and how it works as a reproducible analysis pipeline tool.
